VULNERABILITY DETAILS:

CVEID: CVE-2013-0169
DESCRIPTION:
The IBM GSKit component used in Rational RequisitePro is susceptible to a Transport Layer Security protocol (used in HTTPS) vulnerability known as "Lucky Thirteen." The vulnerability might allow remote attackers to conduct distinguishing and plain-text recovery attacks by statistically analyzing timing data for crafted packets.

The IBM GSKit is used if RequisitePro is configured to use LDAP authentication using SSL. If your RequisitePro deployment is not using LDAP configured with SSL, then your deployment is not sensitive to this attack when authenticating to the LDAP server.
